More Books

More Books is an easy and direct way for all Durham University staff and students to tell us about books you think should be added to the Library.

Whether it’s more copies of existing books, a book you’ve found that we don’t have or a new book that’s just been published, let us know using the form below and we will try and buy it. Currently we are only ordering ebooks. If your request is not available as an ebook we will notify you.

We will contact you when a book you requested is available or, if we are unable to buy it for any reason, we will let you know.

How long will it take to arrive?

If you need the item urgently we’d recommend using the Document Delivery Service instead.
